Indian states seek last-ditch film ban amid violent protests

States Worrying About Padmavat Release

"Chief Minister of Haryana ML Khattar said " It was our duty to comply with the Supreme Court's order" he added that if someone decides not to screen the film, it will be good but if someone screens the film they will be provided security".

BJP-ruled Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh have moved the Supreme Court seeking modification of its order allowing pan-India exhibition of the controversial movie "Padmaavat". "A committee formed by the state government will discuss and review the SC order in a meeting on Saturday".

The Supreme Court has all but read the riot act to States taking shelter behind the imperatives of maintaining law and order.

The apex court had, on January 18, 2018, paved way for the nationwide release of the movie on January 25 by lifting the ban put by states like Gujarat and Rajasthan on its screening.

Earlier on Sunday, thousands of women organized a "Chetavni (warning) rally" in Rajasthan's Chittorgarh town. The court had allowed the producers to release the film across the country.

Padmaavat (the film) stars Deepika Padukone as the 13th century Rajput queen Padmini, Shahid Kapoor as Maharawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji.

The organization also warned theater owners not to screen the movie.

"Padmavati", which was scheduled to be released on December 1, mired in controversy following various Rajput groups alleging that it distorts the history of the region.

In Rajasthan, the epicentre of the Padmaavat protest wave, the situation is getting intense.

A caste-based group called the Shri Rajput Karni Sena, which has been leading the violent protests, has threatened to attack cinemas showing the film, including with swords. After the censor board cleared the film for release, following changes in the script and title, reporters asked the CM on January 12 if it would be released in MP.
